Up Close and Personal

I went out to Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary on Wednesday to see what birds were there. I saw a very nice assortment though nothing unusual - Ring-necked Duck, Double-crested Cormorant, Lesser Scaup, Spotted Towhee, Red-winged Blackbirds, Sparrows of several kinds, Downy Woodpecker, Anna's Hummingbird, American Coot, Bufflehead Duck, a Yellow-rumped Warbler and a Marsh Wren. The Mallard Ducks at Swan Lake are very friendly and the drake above posed so photogenically in his new breeding plumage that I couldn't resist taking a dozen photos of him.
